Gila Monster Nail Clippers
Regular toe nail trimming is an essential part of keeping captive Gila monsters healthy. Over the years I've tried many things and never found the perfect tool until I came across these clippers. These work so well I won't use anything else. They provide excellent control and because of the special shearing action of the blade, they cut the nail with minimal effort without crushing.
These clippers will work with any size Gila from neonate to adult. They'll work on equivalent sized beaded lizards, but won't work well on large beadeds.
Photo Color Accuracy
Each animal sale photo has been color calibrated to a standard to accurately represent the color of each animal. Consumer computer monitors aren't consistently good at accurately displaying colors. The color on your monitor may not be accurate, but each image is individually calibrated to be accurate.
Gila Monster Color
All Gila monsters change color as they mature. Babies are yellow or cream on black. As they mature the light color will develop colors ranging from orange to pink. It's not possible to predict the adult color based on the color of the baby. The color of the parents will give some indication of what color to expect as the baby matures, but there can be significant variation in the mature color even in a single clutch. It usually takes several years for the adult color to fully develop.
Gila Monster Sex
It is not possible to accurately determine the sex of immature Gila monsters from their appearance. Some baby Gila monsters show characteristics of their sex at hatching or as they start to grow. However, this is not a consistently reliable way to determine sex. I may give my impression of sex in the description, but consider this just an educated guess.
As a Gila monster approaches maturity it can be reliably sexed by ultrasound. If the animal for sale is old enough to sex with ultrasound, I'll state the sex for certain and guarantee that it is accurate.
